Congratulations and best wishes to the Anderson High School Calculus II class. They are heading to the Clemson Calculus Challenge, thanks in part to a donation from Community Hospital.
Community Hospital CEO Beth Tharp, VP of Engagement, and Leah Campbell, Director of Marketing and Communications presented a $2500 check to Richard Ziuchkovski’s Calculus II class for their trip to Clemson University in South Carolina where they will compete in the national calculus contest. The Clemson Calculus Challenge is a one day calculus contest for high school students. It consists of two components. In the morning students each take a 90-minute calculus test consisting of 40 multiple-choice questions. The questions range in difficulty from “fairly routine” for the first , to “very challenging” for the last 10. The afternoon competition is team oriented. Teams of three to four students compete in a six-round, free-response question tournament. Each round lasts 10 minutes, and a team’s score is determined by correctness and time needed to solve the problem. The morning exam and the afternoon problems are designed to test students’ knowledge on topics in the Advanced Placement Calculus AB syllabus. Anderson High School is the only School participating from the state of Indiana in the National contest.
